What is a Galette?

The French have given us many wonderful recipes like the souffle, creme brulee, and galette. A galette is a form of pizza pie, or you can call it the free-form crusty round cake. Galette usually has a crispy crust on the outside and a crunchy, fruity, and juicy filling in the center. This is a fruity and sweet take on a pizza. If you ever make up your mind trying a galette recipe, you should definitely start with a blueberry lemon galette; the berries and the zesty lemon give a great combination to the perfectly crispy and crunchy galette!
